North Wales Accessible Holidays for Blind and Visually Impaired (Reg Charity No: 1171132 Established 16th January 2017.
As a blind and registered blind person myself, following the devasting news on the 17th October 1977 at the age of 19, as I'm sure anyone reading this will surely imagine my world and life was completely torn apart. I was 3 years in depression before starting to come to terms and accept that I was faced with living the rest of my life with blindness. However I wss determined not to sit with my feet in the water and freeze, and as a result of this my wife Karen, who is my rock and soulmate, and has been for 40 years together, we have raised £1.5 million for 3 popular National Blind Charities.
My experience in life as being a blind person is when you can not see you find that socialising and chatting is a brilliant theraphy.
Our aims and objectives with your kind and generous support, we have set our goal and ambition that in 2 years we are aiming for an initial target of collosal sum of £85000 to purchase a fully accessible and adapted static caravan to meet the needs of blind and visually impaired adults and children.
The holiday caravan will consist of sympathetic lighting, additional lighting, talking microwave, plus any other conceivable equipment to ensure that our client group will have a safe and comfortable stay.
Our holidays will be free and heavily subsidised. The proposed site will be Lido Beach Caravan Park, Prestatyn North Wales. It is inevitable there will be an ongoing fundraising programme to enable us as a charity to donate free and subsidised holidays to meet the most needy and deprived part of our client group wether it be children or adults living with sight loss and other disabilities.
The beauty of our organisation is we must emphasise and reiterate that no one will be waged or salaried.
